Blender full of fruits and vegetables

Smoothy

Smoothy
Prep time:
Total time:
This is my staple smoothy recipe. It’s pretty much a blended meal and I make a full blender full, which makes 5 pints (I usually use mason jars, as they are convenient for bringing to work).
Ingredients
  • 1 handful of nuts, almonds, walnuts, cashews
  • 2 tbsp flax meal
  • 1 scoop protein powder (I only add this occasionally, depending on whether I want the smoothy to be a more complete meal)
  • 1-2 oranges
  • 1-2 apples
  • 2 carrots
  • 1 giant handful of spinach, really just as much as you can fit in the blender
  • 1 cup kefir (if I have it)
  • 3ish cups of water, enough to fill up to about half of the blender – I like my smoothies very blended and quite liquidy, so if you like a thicker smoothy, you’ll probably want less water. It also depends on your blender, because most need enough liquid to blend properly.
  • 2 cups of frozen mixed berries
Instructions
  1. I add all of the ingredients in the order above, except for the frozen berries.
  2. I blend it all quite well, then add the frozen berries. I sometimes add more water at this stage if it doesn’t seem to be blending well.
